About This List

Each week I publish the most Delicious Ingredients of my Audible Feast ... the scrumptious, delectable, savory, rich, sweet, spicy, and best podcasts that have fed my ears over the last week. They're listed in no particular order. You can see what I've been listening to here to see the competition these shows beat out to earn their spot as the best of the best. This week I listened to 69 episodes for this podcast review recap - 19 new shows for me this time, five of which made it on the list below, including Honorable Mentions. Link to this and more recommendations on my website:
  1. Delicious Ingredients

  2. Bayard Rustin was a champion of the black civil rights movement—mentor to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., organizer of the 1963 March on Washington. But because he was gay and out, he faced bigotry inside and outside the movement. The FBI and Sen. Strom Thurmond tried to destroy him. But he persisted.

  3. New year, new season.Kevin Hart. Ellen. Brett Kavanaugh. We live in an age of #SorryNotSorry, prevalent in our pop culture and woven into the fabric of our nation’s founding. But how can we grow into the people we want to become when we can’t acknowledge our mistakes and the effect that they've had on others? We invite you to start off 2019 with an apology.Discussed this week:Christine Blasey Ford’s testimony at the Kavanaugh confirmation hearing (2018)“I Won’t Back Down” (Tom Petty, 1989)“Ms. Jackson” (OutKast, 2000)“All Apologies” (Nirvana, 1993)“Sorry” (Beyoncé, 2016)“Poltergeist” (directed by Tobe Hooper, 1982)“The Best Man” (directed by Malcom D. Lee, 1999)Dan Harmon’s apology on the Harmontown podcast (Jan. 10, 2018)Kevin Hart’s non-apology on Instagram (Dec. 6, 2018)Kevin Hart’s appearance on Ellen (Jan. 4, 2019)“The Apology of Socrates” (Plato, translated by Benjamin Jowett)“I’m Sorry” (Brenda Lee, 1960)
  4. Leigh (@lshfoster) and Ellie (@elliebrigida) talk about why I Love Lucy should have been gay. Lucy and Ethel are the 1950s gal pals of our dreams. From working together at the candy factory, opening up their own business together, fighting over their own ship name (should it be Ethelu or Lucel?), snuggling on the roof together, wallpapering Lucy's living room in overalls and bandanas and trying to make a lesbian long distance relationship work, Lucy and Ethel originated some of our favorite lesbian tropes. Above all else, Lucille Ball and Vivian Vance are true feminist icons so why not be lesbian icons too? Follow along on Twitter @lezhangoutpod and Facebook and Instagram (@lezhangoutpod).

  5. Before Elizabeth Cutler and Julie Rice met, they shared a common belief: New York City gyms didn't have the kind of exercise classes they craved, and each of them wanted to change that. A fitness instructor introduced them over lunch in 2005, and before the meal was done they were set on opening a stationary bike studio, with a chic and aspirational vibe. A few months later, the first SoulCycle opened in upper Manhattan. Today, SoulCycle has cultivated a near-tribal devotion among its clients, with studios across the United States and Canada. PLUS for our postscript "How You Built That," how "kid-preneur" Gabrielle Goodwin and her mom Rozalynn invented a double-face double snap barrette that doesn't slip out of little girls' hair, no matter how much they play around.
  6. Min is determined to only marry a Sikh who wears a turban. But after a decade of looking her family and friends want her to widen her search by the time she turns 38. As the only daughter, her mum and dad just want her to be happy but also married and settled with her own family and they don’t mind who she marries. Min’s mum thinks not only should her daughter abandon her search for a turban-wearing Sikh but she should widen her search further to include non–Sikhs. With only three months to go before Min turns 38 the clock is ticking. Will Min consider someone without a turban, let alone out of faith? The producer is Perminder Khatkar
  7. Mark asks if being the baby brother suuuucks by looking at his family where there were not one, but two little-wittle-baby-brothers-oh-you-so-cute-in-your-little-suit-with-your-little-girlfiend-stand-over-there-so-we-can-take-a-picture.

  2. This week, my friend Ma’ayan joins me to discuss her genius meal prep method called Cascading Leftovers Theory, which is inspired by the prep fridges of restaurant kitchens. Basically, it's all about prepping individual building block ingredients early in the week and turning them into different things every day. We talk about how and why she started cooking this way, how it prevents boredom and encourages creativity, what staple ingredients she relies on, the power of sandwiches, seasonings, and immersion blenders, and how going out to brunch can help you try out this method of cooking! You can find Ma’ayan on Twitter @maayanplaut.
